Best Bay Area Albums Of All Time: #6
In 1971, there were a lot of bands making sweaty, hard-edged, bluesified boogie-rock--including the Rolling Stones. However, Mick Jagger himself could not deny Teenage Head, the Flamin’ Groovies’ greatest album, and in fact praised it as being better than Sticky Fingers. Stones-worthy or not,Teenage Head stands as one of the high points of both early-Seventies proto-punkaboogie and of Bay Area rock as a whole.
